Coach Training

All coaches have to be first accepted and authorized by the League as a coach and should have a valid AYSO ID. So, please send an email to soccer@evergreenunited.org if you would like to become a coach in our league.

All coaches must be trained. We go to great lengths to provide MANY training opportunities.
